Parking Ordinance Enforcement
To discourage full-day employees from taking prime parking spaces that are needed to serve Downtown customers, the City will enforce a Parking Ordinance for three-hour, time-limited parking on select streets in the area from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Currently, Marshals are issuing warnings. Beginning July 15, violators will receive a citation with a $75 fine.

Utility Customers
To avoid the construction area, utility customers are encouraged to use one of the following bill payment options: e-bill, mail, PC banking, automatic bank draft, authorized payment location, credit or debit card via phone or online, drive-thru service or drop box located at 717 W. State St. For more information, visit GarlandUtilities.org or call 972-205-2671.
